Roll’em!

Chocolate Power Bar Balls from Elana's Pantry

Walnuts, dates, and dark chocolate chips blended.

I normally don’t cook with chocolate, but couldn’t resist when I discovered this recipe on Elana’s Pantry over the weekend. The balls have a smooth, truffle-like texture while being the product of much healthier ingredients: walnuts, dates, dark chocolate chips, vanilla, and a little salt in a food processor.

Fun facts:

– This recipe takes less than 10 minutes to make.

– While the dates gummed up my blender, they worked fine in the food processor.

– Since these sweets consist largely of nuts and dates, they’re significantly more satisfying than other chocolate snacks.
